    Red Dye for Boxster 987 roof

    A forum sponsor is Carhood Warehouse, you could try asking them for advice or even a quote.

    I think OP wants to avoid 'The Nutcracker'.

    That depends. Will you have to drive in central London?

    981 garage remote door opener switch mod

    Wapping the remote in foam doesn't reduce the range in any way? Negligible, or just doesn't bother you personally? (I drive down a straight road to my house, I'd like max range; someone else made a U turn into a cul de sac so could press his button at the "back" of his house and the door would be open by the time he got to the front). The full set of silly stickers off eBay didn't have a more suitable icon? Think I remember Sonar. Wish I could wire my remote into my Homelink buttons but I barely know one end of a soldering iron from the other

    How to: fit 987 interior (and number plate) LEDs

    I still have them, no failures to my knowledge but understand that I barely use the car once a week. To gijap, this is a 987.1, I believe the .2 had many LEDs from the factory.
  10. Well we know there is a racket in hire cars after an accident. But who'd have thought there was a scam in disputing the value of those hire cars? https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2017/jun/16/expert-witnesses-jailed-perjury-cost-replacement-cars-insurance?CMP=Share_iOSApp_Other

    Their client hit you. At no fault of your own, you've lost your car. You should be back in a position you were before the accident. Their Parkers quotes simply won't do that. It might work for when it's your fault, but not when it isn't. Hold out. If you are a member of AA / RAC, you may have free legal advice. I'm not saying use it, but it's another threat to them, that they can drag the case out fighting with an equal rather than a greenhorn (!), or hurry up and settle it for a grand extra.

    Sorry to hear about it - hope it works out well in the end. Glad no-one was hurt. The advised technique is to find a bunch of ads of similar cars for sale, preferably close to you, at favourable prices, then give that to the insurance company as evidence. Doesn't sound way off the value of a 2.5 to me but I don't follow closely.
